The Tanner Lectures on Human Values, founded July 1, 1978, at Clare Hall, Cambridge University, was established by the American scholar, industrialist, and philanthropist Obert Clark Tanner.

Volume 35 features lectures given during the academic year 2014 to 2015 at the University of Oxford; University of California, Berkeley; the University of Michigan; Princeton University; Stanford University; the University of Utah; and Yale University.
